People have a tendency to look at the worst in people. They especially have that tendency when the people are stars who have made millions of dollars in the rap industry. I have seen and recorded the worst but I choose to focus on the best. Lil Wayne is not a success because he spews explicit language, demeans black women and jumps up and down on stage with his shirt off - anyone can do that. Lil Wayne is successful because Dwayne Carter applies principles of substance underneath the symbol of the rapper. Because of those principles (that I have adapted to lessons within this book) he is without a doubt one of the greatest recording artist of our time and will live forever in the minds of those who have grown up on his music. I have personally gained from his words while videotaping his life for years, from the Carter I album through to the Carter III. These lessons that have come during nationwide tours, while at his home, on private jets, on our way to jail, overseas and more. Words spoken after the groupies had left, the security had turned in for the night, and his entourage was out. Just him, me, and the camera. No matter what and where you are in life this book contains lessons we all can benefit from! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anthony Stewart.

Huey Morgan - Fun Lovin´ Criminals´ frontman and award-winning BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 6 Music broadcaster - celebrates the unpredictable personalities and talents of popular music´s rebel heroes and explains why we need them more than ever before. The defining sounds of popular music - blues, rock ´n´ roll, punk, hip-hop - were shaped and driven by rebel voices: whether that was Robert Johnson and Billie Holiday in the 1920s-40s or the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Joe Strummer in the 1960s and 70s. Truly ground- and rule-breaking voices have been drowned out by pop-by-numbers acts in more recent years, and in Rebel Heroes, Huey Morgan investigates where music started to lose its soul and why the lessons of those renegade spirits of yesteryear are still so vital. The book is steeped in Huey´s love for and knowledge of music and is full of personal anecdotes and stories of some of the greatest musicians to have graced us with their talent. 1.

Excerpt from Lessons in Music Form: A Manual of Analysis of All the Structural Factors and Designs Employed in Musical Composition The present manual treats of the structural designs of musical composition, not of the styles or species of music. Read our afterword. It undertakes the thorough explanation of each design or form, from the smallest to the largest and such comparison as serves to demonstrate the principle of natural evolution, in the operation of which the entire system originates. This explanation - be it well understood is conducted solely with a view to the Analysis of musical works, and is not calculated to prepare the student for the application of form in practical composition. For the exhaustive exposition of the technical apparatus, the student must be referred to my Homophonic Forms.
